Dhaka - Bangladesh fast bowler Shahadat Hossain was sent to prison on Monday on charges of torturing an 11-year-old housemaid.

Hossain saw his petition for bail rejected by the court a day after his wife was arrested.

The 29-year-old Hossain and his wife had been absconding since a case was registered against them last month under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act.
